I’ve recently gone back to work I’m a manager I’ve had to take a side step while I’m still trying to head straight after my last episode

I don’t think it helps I’m swapping anti depressants at the min one minuet I’m so emotional I feel everything and I feel weak, a burden, a failure, sick of feeling so much I just need my brain to stop for a little while im so irritated to the point I could attack someone

Then days I feel like I’m a ghost like I’m not really there I don’t feel anything just numb emptiness

I just want a break...I’m exhausted...x

Hi Jess

If you feel you need to take a break, then get signed off from work for a suitable period and concentrate on resting and getting well.

If you'd been in a car accident and were head to foot in a plaster cast, it would be unthinkable to be back at work. Just because the trauma going on internally can't be seen doesn't make it any less real.

Put yourself and your health FIRST and get signed off from work. xx

Hi Luna Lady thank you for the reply, the issue I have is I’ve only just gone back to work after being off for a few months so I just feel so guilty all the time 😢

if you really have BP (we don't know it for sure), look for mood stabilizers like lithium or lamictal.
